The World's Greatest Music
Walt Disney, Abraham Lincoln and Andy Warhol all make an appearance in this larger-than-life opera by Philip Glass, imagining the final years of the American cartoonist. English National Opera staged the UK premiere on 1 June 2013, following a performance in Madrid.
The opera opens with an animated owl flying over Walt Disney, who lies in a hospital bed. It later transpires he killed the owl and is haunted by the memory. (c) ENO/Richard Hubert Smith
